Those who don’t know much about BJJ may not realize all that it can do for you, mentally and physically. Ask anyone who practices it on a regular basis and the list of how it has changed their lives is lengthy and often varied. For some practitioners, BJJ has helped them sleep better without prescriptions or stay active and avoid back pain. The point is there are many benefits to gain from BJJ aside from being trained in a highly respected, competitive form of combative martial arts.
To start with, BJJ stands for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It is a form of martial arts that trains students to be able to fight when needed, from either a standing position or to recover from a ground position. Obviously, even for those who do not want to go on to compete, there are great benefits other than just being able to defend yourself if necessary.
Getting Fit With BJJ
Getting fit while training with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is easy and fun. Since students are focused on training, learning and improving upon new techniques they don’t even realize they are getting a workout. It is certainly something you feel and will see the results too. However, unlike hitting the treadmill at the gym you are too busy enjoying the activity to be bored by it. If you want to get fit without having to feel like your fitness routine is a chore, BJJ is the perfect match.
Not to mention people see better results from their BJJ workouts versus the gym because you naturally get an all over body workout. Very few workouts have the ability to enable you to use every muscle group of your body this naturally. Even those who go to the gym and lift weights alternate the muscle groups and still tend to leave certain muscles out completely.
Gain Confidence With BJJ
Feeling better, looking better and being stronger are all ways that will help you feel better about yourself. Not to mention, once you know you can defend yourself against a potential attacker you can’t help but feel more confident about yourself. All of these factors improve upon your overall confidence and self-esteem. This can be especially important for anyone who has ever been victimized or for children who have been bullied.
